A warm and friendly welcome from Badgers Cricket Club – a wandering cricket side who play only friendly cricket matches, mostly in the villages of Surrey – and who also enjoy a yearly three day tour (for many years to the Cotswolds, briefly to Dorset, for several years to Cheshire and more recently we have wandered in our touring too, taking in visits to Cheltenham, Taunton and Canterbury). For more information about the club and this web site, take a peek at the about page.
The site continues to grow in scope, despite having made its first appearance twenty-two and a half years ago in March 2000, and in addition to up-to-the-minute results, summary scorecards, detailed scorecards, match reports and fixtures, you will also find more statistical information than you could shake a stick at (going all the way back to the club’s inaugural season in 1959), the Badgers ‘Honours Board’, a list of the current club officers and links to our social media ‘presence’.

The 2022 Tour to Worcester has been and gone and a good time was had by all. We played three games of cricket against extremely welcoming opponents on some lovely grounds and somehow contrived to win all three, although the Friday game, being a T20, doesn't count towards the normal statistics. The usual summarised details of the games that do count can be found on the results page along with statistical notes only match reports, the detailed scorecards, and the traditional Badgers’ focused scorecards.
PLEASE NOTE that I have had no time over the past fortnight to revisit the Oxted scorebook and therefore some parts of this site are stuck at 26th June and likely to remain that way unless some extra hours magically appear in my day.

This update was supposed to have gone up before Tour but I ran out of time, so my apologies for this being late. More on Tour to follow later this week.
A record breaking afternoon at a lovely ground against new opponent Sunbury last Sunday saw the Badgers notch up another win. The usual summarised details of the game can be found on the results page along with a statistical notes only match report, the detailed scorecard, and the traditional Badgers’ focused scorecard.
PLEASE NOTE that since I have still not sorted out the Oxted game there are some parts of this site that are stuck at 26th June. The fact that we are off on tour to Worcester this weekend makes it highly unlikely that things will get resolved before the following Saturday at the earliest.

Darrell has found us a game against another new opponent, Sunbury, to fill a gap in the fixture list. Full details on the fixtures page.
A second pummelling in three weekends in the oven-like surrounds of Ewell’s Ruxley Lane ground with only some freewheeling fun and games from nine, ten and jack making the score look respectable. The usual summarised details of the game can be found on the results page along with a statistical notes only match report, the detailed scorecard, and the traditional Badgers’ focused scorecard.
PLEASE NOTE that since I have still not sorted out the Oxted game there are some parts of this site that are still stuck at 26th June. I have now got hold of a photo of the Oxted scorebook page for their innings and hopefully that might allow me to figure things out (when I get the time, which is not a given at any point over the next fortnight or more).
The older What’s New entries are now held on separate pages, to keep this main page cleaner and smaller, and you can also navigate to them using the drop down menus at the top of the page (under Badgers’ Burrow).
